Are the vintage windows logo and the menu keys all doubleshots?

Would be a dream come true if GMK finally made these available in doubleshot.

Bars are missing from the render, we should have an updated one on Monday when GMK's engineer gets back.

Would be a dream come true if GMK finally made these available in doubleshot.

They're pad-printed, I asked GMK if they could be doubleshot and they said "The win and menu legends have too much fine detail and are therefore not suitable for the doubleshot process". I'll ask again to see if anything has changed.

Nice :)

Does this mean I can simply sandpaper the legends out? Or anyone can recommend the best method of removing the legends? I will probably need additional 2 blanks for my custom keyboard.

If the legends are of the same OG Cherry pad printing quality they will last pretty much the life of the set, they are nothing compared with currently available cheap stock OEM pad printed key caps.

One thing I wanted to suggest, but would sherryton not want to put GMK in the groupbuy page?  It says Originative and then Originative again when you click on the link https://www.originativeco.com/products/originative

I don't know if this is something sherryton wants to change, but if you put GMK then Originative people may be more assured this is a GMK set and not a set from another supplier?  Plus a bigger more defined ORDER HERE link at the very beginning of the thread would help?

I don't know what

http://www.kbdist.com

is.

I click on originative, and then I'm told to go on another website.

Will order anyway.

If you buy a phone from Google, you're not told to go on another website. You're diluting a brand.

Originative is the name of the vendor and also the name of the keyset. If you read the description on the store page, it clearly says this set is manufactured by GMK

yes, I know, but in my opinion it's wrong. And people don't like to read, and don't make assumptions.

I do not think demand depends on branding, in this case, most people recognize GMK as the maker and associates it with high quality key caps. We all know white on black is not that popular with young people that makes most of the community now, while some of us really want this to reach MoQ and makes a great buy, it may not, just because people prefer bright colors and novel color combinations; but, that does not have anything to do with details like the name of the set, nor the links in the order page.

How are we doing? The absence of activity in the thread has me worried. I need this set!

We're not doing too well, last I heard we were at 32/28 orders, and we'll need a minimum of ~75 for the set to be made. So we'll need a strong final push or a considerable order from China to succeed.

I've seen many sets take off in the final week. I hope that this will follow the same path. A similar thing has happened to the gmk stormtrooper set.

I fully intend to join after my credit card statement get issued in a few days, so the transaction get posted in next month's statement. Meanwhile, I can prioritize shorter running GBs I'm interested in. I'm sure this is typical in any long running GBs.

This is the end-all WoB set. It's perfect.
Sadly, September turned out to be a heavy month for me, but I'm hoping to squeeze in an order before the deadline.

It is not the best timing for my keyboard hobby budget; but, I hope to be able to set an order before the deadline, more importantly, I really hope the set reaches MoQ to be made, it is a shame a nice set like this at a great price does not make it.

I agree. Here is hoping for the best I just hope the GB is open long enough for me to grab one. I guess this is one benefit of getting paid weekly.

Hey guys,

I'm here to make an update on the Originative set.

So far it's not that great. We're at 36/150 for Originative set and 28/150 for the Magenta Mod set.

If the Chinese Group Buy can double the numbers, then I'll make sure we get this through.
